Everything is Waiting For You - Poet David Whyte
In this video, David Whyte is being interviewed by Michael Toms of New Dimensions Radio. He speaks of the importance of poetry in life, to help us master the meaning of it. And then he shares his poem, Everything is Waiting For You and the meaning of it to him. It can take a while to get in to the language of poetry, the realm of the right brain. Listen to this poem several times and feel yourself make that shift into a great wholeness of understanding.

This is one of my most favorite books by a brilliant poet. David Whyte was a physician who chose to leave his career to become a poet. In his own words, "My father-in-law wasn't too happy with my decision." Thank heavens for the rest of us that he did!
Beautiful, evocative poetry that inspires and allows the sense of self to expand into a greater sense of being.

Awakening the Global Heart - Anodea Judith
A master teacher about chakras, Judith eloquently explains the transformational time that we are in and wheret our road map is.
Our World's Current Transformation - The wisdom of Anodea Judith
She is an inspiring and gifted teacher about the body's chakra system. In this book she expands her wisdom from the individual to the globe.
For the first time since the planet cooled 5 billion years ago, humanity is capable of influencing-for better or worse-the trajectory of evolution. This requires a tremendous responsibility and maturity of the heart.Only through a rite of passage will humanity shift from the love of power to the power of love. No mere sentimentality, this initiation is an urgent and wrenching shift that will uproot and transform every aspect of human civilization. This paradigm saves energy, reduces disease, is ecologically sustainable, and spiritually uplifting. It focuses on networks rather than markets, favors cooperation over competition, sustainability over exploitation, co-creation of our future over procreation.
